First Lady Aisha Buhari Backs Social Media Bill

First Lady, Aisha Buhari has thrown her weight behind the bill seeking to regulate Nigeria's social media space, which seeks Protection from Internet Falsehood and Manipulation.

While speaking at the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs General Assembly and National Executive Council Meeting held at the National Mosque in Abuja, the president's wife called for the regulation of social media.

Exemplifying her point with China, Aisha stated that with about 1.3 billion people, the Asian country had been able to regulate its social media, and she doesn't see why Nigeria with only 180 million people cannot attempt to control its social media.

She said, “ On this issue of social media, you cannot just sit in the comfort of your house and tweet that the Vice President has resigned. It is a serious issue. If China can control over 1.3 billion people on social media, I see no reason why Nigeria cannot attempt controlling only 180 million people."

Since the social media bill passed second reading at the Senate, politicians, key opinion leaders, and the Nigerian populace have expressed that the bill be is a threat to Nigerians' freedom of speech and the nation's democracy.
If passed into law, the bill seeks to prevent falsehoods, manipulations, and counter the effects of such communications and transmission.



  1. China that the US is afraid of because they have the resources to emerge the hegemony it’s the one Aisha “I’m not the First Lady” is comparing Nigeria to. It’s only bad things we compare ourselves to, we never emulate things that help our economy. It’s always nonsense, next thing they’d said ban WhatsApp video calls since some countries have that rule. Rubbish

  2. You just don't have what to say. China also kills corrupt politicians madam.

  3. This woman isn't different from her husband.

  4. A country that can't even pay their civil servants a somewhat liveable wage, and that routinely owe its pensioners is concerned about social media? Talk about putting the cart before the horse. Start being concerned about running an efficient and thriving nation before worrying about invisible ppl online. Foolishness

  5. So the story that she was the center of a couple months ago where she was blocked out of her residence and had to come back to Nigeria after her month away from the country to address is what has her concerned about social media😂😂😂

  6. Lol " the vice president has resigned" (you want him out Abi?) Or why use that e.g? How are we sure you did not anonymously send that out Aisha? Or are you absorbed of mis use of social media?

  7. Her hands are tied so her mouth speaks both ways

  8. And this was the one praying for Nigeria a few months back? Madam 2face!

  9. Why can't the pass a law to kill corrupt politicians?

  10. Dictatorship uploading. Pity.

  11. never liked Aisha. I always see her as a cunning person and an eye service Person.she speaks when the thing is affecting her and her family. very selfish woman.

  12. Madam Aisha Buhari I agree with you China regulating Social media, but hope you know that China also kills corrupt politicians, China also take the welfare of its citizens very seriously, so if Nigeria politicians must emulate, let's do it very well. Oshisco!
